I swear to Ghawd... my sister would be in line if she lived in Utah.

I love her deeply but oh my god, she drank the koolaide, took the pill and all the rest. Its sickening

I would go but there is a two hour Guilligan's Island special on TV at that time. This is the one where they almost get rescued, and I want to watch it.

I would have had to miss Price is Right, so I passed.

Monson now floats around in City Creek Mall, standing in the air, for his feet do not touch the floor. Those in tune with the spirit have reported and testified that they have seen Monson just as described in the aforementioned apparition, and he can be heard whispering "let's go shopping!" Surely such reports will bring floods of shoppers to the mall, yea more numerous than ever attained by Elvis sightings. And thus we see that even in death, Monson is protecting his beloved church's corporate investments.

I guess it is an open casket because one of the news channels admonished that no one is to touch the body. I have no doubt someone will try to. ewwww

Sunlight allergy. Also needs to be kept away from mirrors.

Maybe the Mormon masters want his body unseen by the hordes since you never know who might try sprinkling some drops of water over him to perform an unbaptism of the dead.

I want to be there during the conclave of the Holy Ones of Zion, to watch and cheer with the assembled multitude in Temple Square as the white plume of smoke goes up from the SL Temple to announce to the eagerly waiting world, "We have a Prophet, Seer, and Revelator!"

Interesting how many times the article uses the word service or servant. I guess that's the spin they're trying to put on monson's tenure.

Yesterday's viewing (on Thursday) was open casket. Today's funeral (Friday) is closed casket. I read that a private closing of the casket took place before today's funeral began. I saw pictures of the open casket at the viewing, with people filing by. President Monson's body was not visible in the photos I saw. I imagine they had him low enough in the casket that you'd have to be close to it to see him.

As a funeral service professional, I would say that positioning a body in a casket for the viewing is an art unto itself. My personal preference for how high the body should be in the casket is that it should be high enough to avoid the impression that the deceased is way down in a box, but not so high as to give the impression that the deceased is not quite "settled in." In my opinion, the deceased should be partially visible in the casket when one is at a distance from it.

What I always found creepy was Monson already had a sort of dead look. I've seen enough dead people to know.

Anyone else?

Couldn't make it as I had to watch my nail polish dry.

I found Tommy the Turtle's slooow-sing-songy deliverance annoying, irritating and tiring. His smile was creepy to me, too. you think this is why they didn't assign me to write his obituary notice?
